Project 10 challenge 2. Need a bit of help! Capturing error message [Camera] fail to read exposureBiasesByMode dictionary: Error

Forums > 100 Days of Swift

Hi guys I'm kind of confused regading that return value for "UIImagePickerController.isSourceTypeAvailable()" were do we need to declare this method? my camarea works perfectly fine but I'm capturing an error message in my debug console which is this:

Did someone solve this issue if yes can you guys help me out a bit? Thanks This error is captured after I tap the "Add" button.

<UIImagePickerController: 0x14a011800> 2021-05-22 21:49:13.686567+0100 Project10 - Names & Faces App[90897:7865790] [Camera] Failed to read exposureBiasesByMode dictionary: Error Domain=NSCocoaErrorDomain Code=4864 " -[NSKeyedUnarchiver _initForReadingFromData:error:throwLegacyExceptions:]: data is NULL" UserInfo={NSDebugDescription= -[NSKeyedUnarchiver _initForReadingFromData:error:throwLegacyExceptions:]: data is NULL}


I tried this:

    @objc func addNewPerson() {
        let picker = UIImagePickerController()
        picker.allowsEditing = true
        if UIImagePickerController.isSourceTypeAvailable(.camera) {
            picker.sourceType = .camera
        picker.delegate = self
        present(picker, animated: true)

Paul said this'll only be true on device. In the simulator, it'll return false and show the photo library picker.

But on my iPhone this locks up the app.
